    Though some fans will likely mourn the loss of the simplistically awesome Tarn, Roberts builds upon the foundation of one of his best loved characters, transforming him into a complex figure who's addictive personality runs deeper than we imagined. Along the way he introduces a few new key players, expands the scope of the series, and sets up the next big arc. Hayato Sakamoto's artwork is well suited to the story and really shines in the key moments. It's not as exciting as you might expect a DJD story to be, but things change for the Transformers universe this issue, and in ways that may be difficult to predict. James Roberts turns out an intelligent character portrait that may turn out to be critical to this series in the long term. Read Full Review

    In closing, this isn't going to go down as one of the best issues, but it is a pleasant one-shot that's simple to pick up and read. As far as goals are concerned, it does stir some interest in the future of the Lost Light, so that is definitely a form of success. Read Full Review

    The biggest drawback is that this one-shot story technically spans a large timeline and is casual with making sure you know where and when you are. The characterization doesn't suffer but you certainly need to have read all the material of More Than Meets the Eye prior to this and remember what happened. That being said, the DJD turned out to be quite a compelling crew. Megatron is essentially a holy prophet to them, so imagine how shaken they are when they find out Megs has gone Autobot. This will act as a good set up for future issues, now that we know who the DJD are, it will be all the more interesting when they inevitable cross paths with our heroes again.
